Can you connect with a physical cable? If so, log into the router - this will be your computer's default gateway. Once in, you should be able to find the code.
If you don't know what your router's password is, you may need to default it and re-configure it. There is usually a reset button near the power input. Press and hold this reset button, while plugging it in. I hope you don't have to do this, especially if you have multiple wireless devices. If you do end up doing this, then you will need to set it up from scratch.

good luck,
Mark

WIRELESS GATEWAY


How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password


Symptoms:


You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network



Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.


If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.


To view or reset a wireless network password:


Launch your Internet browser and type http://www.routerlogin.net in or http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 the address field for your browser. Enter the router's username and password.
The default username is admin, the default password is password.
From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router administration interface, select Set Up > Wireless Settings
Note: On some routers this option will be under BASIC > Wireless.
From the center screen, you find the current wireless security settings under the Security Options heading.


If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.


Read more about Securing your Wireless Network.
If you cannot log into your router:


- If you were routed to the NETGEAR website or getting the "Page cannot be displayed" message when trying to login to router, make sure you are connected to the NETGEAR router. Check your wired connection and make sure cable is securely plugged in and LED is on. If wireless adapter is on, make sure you are NOT connected on a different wireless network.


- Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default access information to reconfigure your router settings. NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

How to change your wireless network password. Forgotten wireless password.


Hi. Thanks for looking!

Due to the fact that many questions are being asked about routers and wireless networks I decided to put little tutorial together .



· How to change my routers password (forgotten password)


Since you forgotten your password and can not connect to wireless network you will need an Ethernet network cable in order to connect to router.

Before doing anything else switch your computer on and make sure that your router is on also.

1.
Connect Ethernet cable to your routers free port at the back and the other end to your PC/Laptop network port.
Once you get confirmation that you are connected to the network (you should notice this in the task bar right lower corner of the screen)

2.
Open your internet browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address box and press enter. If this don'ttake you to the site asking for username and password please do the following.Click Start and choose run (below search) type "cmd" in the box and press enter.This should start a command prompt where you need to type in "ipconfig" and press enter. This should show you information's about your network. Default gateway address will be an address that you need to type in your browser box.

3.
Once you get to the login page, provide your username and password. You should be able to find this in your manual for router but if you can't you can find it hear--->click hear.

4.
Please note that since there's so many router vendors instructions in step 4 may vary, but these are basic.-
When you logged in to your router settings page please find wireless tab and choose security. Get to the password box and change password to whatever you like.

5.
Remember to save changes before quitting. Now unplug your cable and try to connect to your network wireless, using your new password.

Bravo! You just completed password change.

How do I reset my owners password? I have forgotten it.. I have a Belkin Wireless N150 Usb adapter and can not remember the password.


Hello,

The password is not stored in the usb adapter. The password is for the wireless router with which you have connected your N150 wireless adapter. Please check with the router the password and then you will be able to connect to the network back again,

Thanks

Forgotten password and cant get connected to ipod


Log into the router page not sure of exact make and model of router but if you do the following on a PC
start>run (search box on vista/7) > CMD > ipconfig /all look at the default gateway - should be something like 192.168.0.1 now use that number in an Internet explorer address bar - should give you the router login often the default username and password is admin - but that does vary by make and model then under wireless section you should be able to read the password for wireless OR
it may be that the password is actually printed on the bottom of the router

Forgotten Password


On the back, there is a small hole, state "reset".
push and hold this for a few seconds, and you have set it to "factory default".
Remember to access your router with a wire, NOT wireless :-)
